About Us

Why realprotect and why Norton? As the real estate insurance program of Norton Insurance, realprotect is not only comprised of insurance professionals, we’re also a real estate firm that has over 200 licensed agents and property managers. We are the experts in insuring real estate investors and understand the real estate business and what investors like you look for and need in a comprehensive insurance program. You’ve built a business out of owning and investing in real estate. Let us help you protect it.

We start with an understanding of your properties, goals and wants and design an insurance program that helps you meet your coverage and pricing objectives. We promise that we will work diligently to find the best coverage at the best price for you – based on your actual needs and not what someone that doesn’t fully understand the needs of real estate investors wants you to have. Give our process a try and find out if you’re covered!
